9:02 am
needed hospital treatment so he was taken to a hospital in salisbury. police say they believe he overpowered two prison guards and he escaped with a razor blade. they are concerned he is dangerous and they are warning the public to stay away from him. if they see him to call 999. we have a fuse still images, they say he's around five or six with noticeable tattoos on his neck. he was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms, a blue t—shirt and trainers. the most noticeable thing is he had a head injury. police say he is not local to the area, he doesn't have any money or a phone, so doesn't have any money or a phone, so there is a possibility he will be spotted by members of the public. why was he in prison? he was sentenced last year after he held a mother and teenage daughter at knife—point in their own home and threatened them. he was sentenced to five years at hmp erlestoke. police
9:03 am
are concerned he might encounter a member of the public so if anyone does see him, dial 999 and don't approach in. thank you. now the rest of the morning's news. a huge car bomb in coble has killed at least 80 people and killed 350. it happened in the diplomatic quarter of the city —— kabul. our correspondent is at the scene and sent this report. this is the scene of today's attack here in kabul the afghan capital. police have cordoned off this area. nobody is allowed to go further than this. but, as you can hear, ambulances and police troops are
9:04 am
arriving to the scene, some are leaving the scene. they are taking some injured people. sirens. you can see this vehicle has taken people who are hurt. it is a chaotic scene. it was a massive, massive blast. people tell me they haven't seen anything like this in many years. as you can see, all the windows and some doors are shattered. nobody has yet ta ke n some doors are shattered. nobody has yet taken responsibility for the attack. but in spite of several demands from the international community, the insurgents and the taliban have not said yes to stop
9:05 am
violence in the holy month of ramadan. a 30—year old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder, after the bodies of a woman and two children were discovered in a flat in liverpool. the discovery was made by officers investigating reports of a fuel leak at a flat in the toxteth area. police say they're not looking for anyone else. the nhs could have to raise an extra half a billion pounds a year, if british pensioners living in other eu countries have to return home for health—care after brexit. that's the warning from a health charity this morning. the nuffield trust says the cost of treating them on home soil rather than abroad could be almost a billion pounds, as sarah corker reports. for many british pensioners it is the appeal of retirement in the sunshine that attracts them to move to countries like spain or france. but having the same health care rights as the locals is an important perk. it's part of a reciprocal scheme which the uk pays around £500 million a year for. that covers nearly 200,000 british expatriates living out their retirement in the eu. but it's a deal potentially under
9:06 am
threat when brexit happens, according to the nuffield trust. people, if they had to return from countries where they live in the eu to here, retired people, could cost the nhs more money. beyond that we probably would need more hospital beds and more nurses to give those people the standards of care they require. unless a deal is struck the trust says pensioners would lose their free health care. if they will return to britain for treatment it could cost the nhs £1 billion a year. last year, spending on the nhs in england was around £102 billion. the nuffield trust estimates the nhs would need around 1600 more doctors, nurses, and other workers to provide this care. in response, the conservative party say protecting the rights of uk nationals in the eu is one of their priorities for the brexit negotiations. but the liberal democrats say this report is evidence that theresa may's extreme version of brexit will be a disaster
9:07 am
for the nhs, putting huge pressure on hospitals. labour are yet to comment but have previously accused the conservatives of starving the nhs. sarah corker, bbc news. for the first time, a british police force is to recruit people directly to become detectives — without them having to first work as uniformed officers. the metropolitan police hopes the scheme will fill some of the 600 detective vacancies in the force, and attract people with different skills and backgrounds who might not otherwise want to join. abuse and bullying in the online gaming world is a growing problem according to new research from anti—bullying charity, ditch the label. of the 2,500 young gamers they surveyed, half had been harassed or received threats. here's our technology correspondent rory cellan—jones. for 16—year—old bailey, video games have been a big part of his life and were once an escape when he was getting a hard time at school. he enjoys pitting his skills against other players online, but what he doesn't like is the abuse he sometimes
9:08 am
gets while playing. he first experienced bullying in games when he was ten and it's not getting any better. if i'm playing a game and i score a goal, i've literally been told to kill myself. if you're being bullied at home, you come home and play your computer and you are just getting more abuse thrown at you. it's just going to put you off doing anything social. the charity ditch the label surveyed 2,500 young gamers. 57% said they had been subjected to hate speech in an online game. 47% had received threats and 40% had had unwanted sexual contact. what's changed over the last decade is that more and more games are played online and that means young gamers are encountering anonymous people from around the world and chatting with them. that can of course, be very positive, but it also lays them open for the kind of dangers we've seen elsewhere in the online world. the anti—bullying charity worked with the online game habbo hotel to research young gamers‘ experiences. and was disturbed by what it found.
9:09 am
i think what's so shocking is the fact that it's normalised behaviour. we had gamers telling us this was just part of playing games online. bailey says he has now learned not to let abuse get to him, but he wants the games companies to do more to watch over what happens online and to act to stop the bullies. rory cellan—jones, bbc news. and we'll have more on that story later in this programme when victoria will speak to some young gamers who have been at the receiving end of bullying online. olivia newton—john has revealed she has breast cancer again, 25 years after recovering from her original diagnosis. the grease star has postponed her upcoming tour dates after discovering that the disease has spread to her spine. the singer and actress is undergoing treatment, and expects to return to the stage later this year. that's a summary of the latest bbc news — more at 9:30. thank you for your messages already
9:10 am
about bullying while gaming. this e—mail says "i've been an avid gamer for years, bullying and harassment is ever present. where young children are playing 18 rated games, ultimately resulting in them being exposed to the behaviour when competition causes friction. however, the simple solution is to joina however, the simple solution is to join a different game session where it may be friendly, or to block horrible people". "my16—year—old brother is autistic and is often bullied online for his speech impediment". and this tweet, "the gaming community should be a place of togetherness, people who bully others online should be ashamed, it is deplorable". we are waiting for jeremy corbyn to attend an event where he will refer to the party's promises on the nhs and education. you can see he's being introduced, it looks like he's being introduced. you'll be there any second so we will bring you some of his speech
9:11 am
live. do get in touch with us throughout the morning — use the hashtag #victorialive and if you text, you will be charged at the standard network rate. let's get some sport now with holly hamilton, and it seems football's best—kept secret will finally be confirmed today. arsene wenger staying at arsenal. we arejust we are just waiting for this to be rubber—stamped by the board today. as we were talking about yesterday it might not be a popular decision with some fans. he's faced so much criticism over the past season, a season criticism over the past season, a season that saw arsenal fail to make the top four in 20 years. but remember they did beat chelsea on saturday to win the fa cup. now, here is jeremy now, here isjeremy corbyn. our now, here is jeremy corbyn. our nhs, oui’ now, here is jeremy corbyn. our nhs, our children's schools is anything but strong and stable. over the last seven but strong and stable. over the last seve n years but strong and stable. over the last seven years they've starved public services who rely on those resources because the conservatives have chosen at every turn tax giveaways
9:12 am
for the few over public services for the many. patients are suffering ever longer waits and crowded wards. those who need care are left without it. a&e and maternity units are threatened with closure. children are crammed into overcrowded and crumbling classrooms. schools are sending home begging letters to the pa rents. sending home begging letters to the parents. it has is to change. together, we have the power to make it change on the 8th ofjune. labour will invest in our people's schools and hospitals. we will cut school class sizes not cut schools. take 1 million people of the national health service waiting lists, not add millions more. ensure that people get the care that they deserve, and guarantee the dedicated staff a pay rise. another five years of the conservatives would be disastrous for our public services. if they carry on as they are now, then by 2022, there could be 5.5
9:13 am
million people on the nhs england waiting list. 1.5 million older people with an met care needs. 650,000 people crammed into primary classes of over 30. families left almost £450 worse off her child as the result of the tories‘ plan to scrap free school meals to 1.7 million of our children. that's the conservative vision for britain. don't take my word for it. last week, the iff is made clear the conservative manifesto promises no new money to the national health service, and a real terms cut in pupilfunding service, and a real terms cut in pupil funding for school. that vision doesn't have to become a reality. on the 8th ofjune, there's only one party that will improve our public services for the many, not
9:14 am
the few. that is the labour party. we can do better than this. labour will build an nhs and social care system for the many. we'll invest 37 billion into our nhs, and take1 million people off the waiting list by 2022. we'll invest 8 billion in social care over the next five years and lay the foundations for a national care service to integrate health and social care. labour will build a national education service and invest in our children's futures. we will cap class sizes at 34 five, six and seven—year—olds. labour will provide free school meals to all primary school children. the conservative party will take that away and replace it with a thimble full of rice crispies for each child. in the fifth richards country of the world it's not acceptable to leave people
9:15 am
languishing in a&e departments on trolleys in hospital corridors without care at all. we believe that those who can afford it should pay just a we believe that those who can afford it should payjust a little bit more to fund care, dignity and opportunity for all. it now gives me great pleasure to introduce our health secretary, john ashworth, to ta ke health secretary, john ashworth, to take you through the details of our concerns over the national health service. we will leave jeremy corbyn there, leader of the labour party, reiterating his party's promises ahead of the general election. cut class sizes, from school meals for primary school children, take a million people of nhs waiting lists, and the paper that he will reverse cuts in corporation tax, and tax what labour says will only be the top 5% of earners. more reaction to
9:16 am
come later on. next this morning, pa rt come later on. next this morning, part two of our new series, election blind dates. every day this week, we'll be bringing you a blind date over lunch between two people with very different views — will they come to blows or walk away friends? up today are georgia toffolo, better known as "toff" from the channel four tv series made in chelsea, and anti—austerity campaigner and cook, jack monroe. one lives a champagne lifestyle, the other was once on the breadline. so this is how they got on — and there is the occasional strong word used in their conversation. there's an election on and people are talking politics. so, what happens when you send two people with opposing views on a lunch date? i'm well nervous. i'm, like, oh my god, this has been so long. literally. will sparks fly? you see people that are sat
9:17 am
there that can go and work and choose not to, they choose to go and sign on, it angers me. or will things hot up? you look gloriously distinguished. hit me with it. slightly punky. you are quite a pretty lady. get that on camera. and will the political... when people stand at the dispatch box and tell me there's more money in education, i look around and i wonder where it's gone. because it's not in my children's school. get personal. what are you going to do? snog her. no, no, that hasn't happened yet. how would i describe myself politically? loud. chuckles. i'm jack munro, and i'm a food writer and political commentator. i used to work in the fire service. i was a 999 call handler. i got pregnant with my son. and i went on maternity leave. and when i went back
9:18 am
to work i couldn't work the shift patterns any more. i ended up in quite a shoddy personal situation. it's something that never leaves you. not eating for three days in a row so you can feed your child, or sitting opposite him, hoping he leaves some of his dinner so you can have some. hi. we've been texting my friend about fox hunting. he's, like, belting, belting, marvellous. i hope you give them both barrels. it's the number one issue facing britain apart from inheritance tax. chuckles. so bad. my name's georgia toffler. i'm 22. i'm best known for being on a tv programme called made in chelsea. and i really love politics. i'm very lucky, i went to a nice school and i live in a lovely part of london. but i'm not, i don't know, i'm not stuck up. but when people do think
9:19 am
of me, and also my name, my nickname is toff, which is, like, ajoke in itself, you know? so people have so many, you know, thoughts about me before they've even met me. chuckles. i'm a member of the conservative party, and i have been for about eight years now. i can't comprehend why anyone my age would support a labour party. i'm trying to remember what i'm like on a date. i'm well nervous. i'm, like, oh my god, it's been so long, literally. damn. hello, nice to meet you, georgia. jack. how are you? yeah, good, fine, quite nervous, but hungry. yeah, i know. if we eat it'll be better. yeah. first things first, right, so, on the political spectrum where would you put yourself? i'm left, on the left. about here. so, centre, where are you? so, centre, left—wing, right—wing, i'm about here. i'm about here. ok, so we're equally divergent from the centre. yeah, not horribly right wing, but definitely not centre. ok, fine, we've
9:20 am
established where we are. god, that looks amazing, thank you. it does, doesn't it? i've got food envy, i want yours. thank you. i'm awkwardly wriggling out of my coat for a second. get rid of those badges. chuckles. yeah, sorry about that. how did you vote on brexit? i spoilt my ballot. what? oh my god, really? yeah. i was campaigning for remain. i truly believe we should remain in the european union. and i got to a point where the weight of the decision literally felt like it was entirely mine, so i thought, you know what, i'm just going to leave it to people who are either more qualified to make the decision, or think they're more qualified, to do it, and i'lljust go with the will of the country at large. oh my goodness, but i think we're so lucky to have that vote, you know? referendums are, like, political engagement at their highest. i can't believe you didn't vote. what about you ? i really regret it, i voted
9:21 am
to remain, i wish that i'd have... voted to leave? yeah, ido. enough other people voted to leave that you've got what you wanted. thank goodness. i think it's a really positive thing for our country that we're leaving. every time i go eat something, or make a point at the same time, i'm, like, i need feeding forthis. chuckles. i can imagine that our views on social welfare are very different. i think what the conservatives have done in the past seven years, with scaling back welfare payments, is overwhelmingly positive. 0k. i know a lot of those people. and their support has been cut left, right, and centre. 0k. i've got friends who are in bed 23 hours a day, cannot look after themselves, and have to rely on two separate care appointments where someone turns up for ten minutes and then goes again. imagine being locked in your bedroom for 22 hours a day. i completely understand, but this is where i think the conservatives are doing well. no, that's the result
9:22 am
of conservative cuts. hear me out. there's only a certain amount of welfare that they can give out, right? as a government. it angers me. i watch television programmes and you see people that are sat there who, you know, are clever, you know, can go and work and choose not to. they choose to go and sign on. it angers me. i don't think there are many. i think with any system, every system is open to abuse. until i was actually in that situation myself, physically freezing, starving, heating turned off, not eating for three days in a row, trying to top myself and my bathroom because i didn't want to carry on, basically. yet, but does not and you also that some of the funding that could have gone to you when you were really in need was going to people that were just lazy? i think less than 1% of benefit payments are fraudulent. how do we know? there is a graph somewhere. i'd have brought it, but i didn't think... yeah, but you're not going to own up to being a benefits cheat, are you? why watch benefit cheats, if you think that's the right term for them, carefully, and not people
9:23 am
who are avoiding large amounts of tax, scribbling their money in the cayman islands? i agree, but i think all of it needs to be watched. it's notjust, like, a one issue kind of thing. so, let's talk about taxes. taxes is big. where do you stand on that? i think a flat rate of tax is a lot better. let's say you work in the city. and you work really hard for what you earn. if you tip over a tax bracket, it's as though the government are punishing you for doing well. for me that's not, you know... do you think we alljust need a certain amount to live on, though, and then... i think in this country, right, if you work hard you earn, do you agree? no. you don't agree with me? you don't agree that in the uk right now if you work your expletive off you will earn money. no, i know loads of people who work their expletive off, cleaning shops, cleaning trains, driving trains. yeah. i also know people who've got their jobs through family connections,
9:24 am
you basically swan around drinking in private members clubs, day in, day out. that's such a stereotype. it's not a stereotype, i know these people. and you think, why should the health care assistant wipe their expletive on 11 grand a year, and the guy who was basically born into the banking role the earning into the banking role be earning ten times as much? i don't think hard work and income are equivalent in this country. really? i completely disagree with you. i disagree. the harder i work, the more i earn. 100%. and if i see, you know, when i look at my accounts, if i think, oh gosh, if i earn more next month i'm going to have pay even more to the taxman, it angers me. do you ever turn jobs down just because you don't want to pay the tax on them? of course not, but it doesn't make me think, oh, god, i want to work hard and earn more. i think we do all need a certain amount to live on. and if you learn more you should contribute. you see, that's where our political ideologies are so different. so, tell me, what are your views on fox hunting? i think it's awful. i think if somebody came up with it now as a sport, and went, i know, we're going to get a pack of dogs
9:25 am
to chase an animal through the woods, they'd be, you know, they'd be tried and sent to prison for it. we'd see it as barbaric and awful. these foxes need to be culled anyway. why do they need to be culled? because they're out of control in the countryside. they affect farmers. come on, people like fox hunting because it's a chance to put all the gear on and get on your horse and have a good old jolly time in the countryside. it's a great, old, british tradition. but there are a lot of great old british... slavery was a great, old british tradition. not really. i just think that it's disingenuous to suggest that people are partaking in fox hunting to help the farmers out. but do you agree that, you know, in the democracy that we live in, theresa may is not wrong for putting it to the house of commons? you know, it's a free vote, all the mps can vote on it. people who vote on it, and i'd like to think the vote goes the right way. yeah, overturning it. chuckles. so, i read somewhere this morning the lib dems, do you remember them? they were, like, sorry, that was mean. chuckles.
9:26 am
but, they were talking about legalising cannabis. for me, you know, smoking cannabis is an addiction. there's a reason why it's a drug. it is definitely true that it does cause mental problems if you smoke cannabis in the long term. so, for me, i think i'd find it deeply distressing if it was made legal here. i don't know, because, cards on the table, i'm a recovering alcoholic. 0k. and i've been soberfor 46 days now. really, wow? yeah, stone cold sober, i was drinking a bottle of whiskey a night and more. but i could go into my local corner shop and buy a bottle of whiskey and the guy behind the counter would joke about how much i drank, but never not serve it to me. 0k. i think i would have done myself a lot less damage if i could have just had a spliff in the evening.
9:27 am
really, wow. than downing a bottle of whiskey to go to bed. but even though it's a class c drug. you know, drugs are drugs for a reason. i know, i'm not saying i have a spliff in the evening, but i think i would've done myself a lot less damage. what's your views, then, you said on security, surveillance, the fact that, apparently, the government can hack into our mobiles at any time, how do you feel about that? if it's helping to keep us safe, i think, go ahead. i don't think i'd want theresa may looking through my selfies. i don't think i'd want diane abbott being head of m15, but, you know, that's the way that we think. thank you. we agree on something. yes. quick, let's find something else we agree on. theresa may's shoes? lovely kitten heel. love a kitten heel. i was mortified, the first time i saw the picture of her, have you seen her russell and bromley shoes... the leopard ones?
9:28 am
with the pointy toes. i've got the same shoes. i nearly wore them today, actually, but they didn't go with my trousers. anyway... i love that, you and theresa may have got the same shoes. oh, my god, it's worse than that, we've got about four or five of the same pairs of shoes. stop it. yeah. you've been quite quiet aboutjezza. shall we talk about him? jezza, jeremy. what a shambles. i know it's awful for me to say that, but, it's a shame that he is the leader of the labour party. i think he was a very good campaigner. a very good backbench mp. but a non—functioning leader. it's great for me, as a tory, i'm loving it, they're getting away with murder, but, you know, in the commons, the standing party that's in power must be scrutinised and questioned. and i worryjeremy corbyn isn't doing that. i think my vote for labour is for good labour mps who deserve this. and your ideology, as well. have you got any other political heroes, historically? margaret thatcher. sorry about the badge!
9:29 am
i know, i was looking at your badge, and i thought, rude, don't be rude about maggie. i'm glad you've taken that off. it's such a shame that i wasn't around then. see, i take the opposite view of that. i skipped school on the day of her funeral so that i could go. did you go? yeah, i went, yeah, amazing, amazing lady. i'm transgender. i'm what's known as non—binary transgender. i don't know enough, please tell me. i was born a woman, and i'm a female, but i went through a phase of taking testosterone to basically make myself more masculine. 0k, 0k. i'm in a really girly phase at the moment, so it's really hard to, kind of, like, explain. yeah, it's interesting. when you're not dragged up. it really is day to day, how you feel? yeah, it's a day to day thing. it's been a bit of an odd one when, like, with people and dating because they've started dating, like, a really feminine version
9:30 am
of me, and then i wander downstairs one morning with, like, a chest binder on, and, like, a suit and a waistcoat and a tie. and they're like, what is that? chuckles. oh, by the way, sometimes i like to dress up as a man. thank you very much. how are we doing it? it's all right, i'll get lunch. are you sure? yeah, yeah, it's fine, it's, like, nine quid, it's fine. are you sure? that's so sweet, thank you. it's all right. you can take me out again. next one's on me. i enjoyed that so much. no, i really liked it. i really liked it. and you're not horribly left wing, and i'm not horribly right—wing. we're here and here, aren't we? i think we established. do you agree? but, where we at now, have i moved you along a bit? i reckon no. i'm not budging. i'm still here. i've shuffled a bit more to the centre. really? and actually, i must say, i hate to admit it, maybe you have a little bit, because you said a few things and i thought, wow, i've never thought of that. if we go out again, we might end up somewhere in the centre. no.
9:31 am
chuckles. go and see my friends, and they'll be, you've changed. yeah, they'll be, like, what happened to you? oh, i met this girl. chuckles. yeah, yeah, yeah. your badges! i thought i'd taken it off now. ifeel like i'm sending a personal hero of yours. i can't believe how funny. chuckles. amazing. if you could just put your arms over each other. chuckles. i had such a nice time. yeah, i had a lovely time. weirdly. i didn't know what to expect, because i was, like, super, super nervous, and, yeah, i had a nice time. i've got a new left—wing friend. a little lefty. who'd have thought it. you said a few things that i'm a kind of, hit home a bit, because i hadn't given some of the things you brought up much thought. so, it's quite thought—provoking for me. because i think often you can be quite ignorant, politically, i think, and i think i'm guilty of that. i've got friends were quite conservative, but they tend to be a lot older. they are, like, my nan and herfriends, something like, in the 70s and 805. so, it was quite nice for me to meet a young person with real conservative views. when i think about, i don't know,
9:32 am
kind of, benefits, ithink, bearing in mind what you said, that's really stuck in my head. do you think you're going to come out hunting if the ban is overturned? i'm not sure i'm ready to go out on horseback. if you ever change your mind. i'll give you a bell if i do. and then go right some awful piece for the guardian about how terrible it was, or something. you so would. but that's so bad. i like that, though, i like that about you. oh, god, i'm not going on a march. you'll never find me on one of those. see, i was going to say, i would take you to volunteer at a food bank, but now you said a march, i'm going to paint you a placard, and we can go out writing. no, overthe picket line, with banners, that'sjust not me. sorry. that's fine. i might go hunting. with that small promise from you. funny. will you see each other again? do you think, would you go for lunch again? i really hope we do. i think it would be really nice. yeah, stay in touch. the start of a beautiful friendship. it is, will have a made in chelsea,
9:33 am
lefty spin off, or something? yeah, it's really niche. it's a bit niche. i think it would work. chuckles. i think it would be ok. and they are friends, extraordinary! this usa's "election blind dates is genius is great. a viewer says "she is showing herself up here". another viewers a survey agree with jack munro. another viewer says i pay around 30 k and still play a lot of tax and national insurance. i don't think hard work and income are equivalent in this country. nurses would agree. your posh guest is so
9:34 am

9:35 am
and we'll be discussing the reported rise in abuse and bullying in online games later in the programme. here's the latest news from joanna. a huge car bomb in the afghan capital kabul has killed at least 80 people and injured over 350. the huge explosion happened in the diplomatic quarter of the city near the german embassy during morning rush hour. last month, the taliban announced the start of a major spring offensive, saying their main focus would be foreign forces. police say a dangerous prisoner believed to be armed with a razor blade is on the run after escaping offices in wiltshire. michal kisiel, 30, had been taken to hospital in salisbury with a head injury before overpowering prison guards. police are warning the public not to approach him. a 30—year old man has been arrested
9:36 am
on suspicion of murder, after the bodies of a woman and two children were discovered in a flat in liverpool. the discovery was made by officers investigating reports of a fuel leak at a flat in the toxteth area. police say they're not looking for anyone else. that's a summary of the latest bbc news — more at 10:00. sport now with holly. we now know he is staying and the decision has been getting a mixed response. we'll be getting reaction from arsenalfans response. we'll be getting reaction from arsenal fans ahead of an official announcement confirming at least two more years of arsene wenger. and how's this for a welcome? the british and irish lions have arrived in auckland for their tour of new zealand, receiving a traditional maori welcome. their first four matches this saturday. and, he needs their help, jack nicklaus has been speaking out about tiger woods after the former world number one was arrested on a charge
9:37 am
of driving under the influence on monday. and it was a good start andy murray at the french open yesterday, he faces world number 50 in the second round at roland garros tomorrow. thank you forjoining us. a breast surgeon — accused of playing god and carrying out unnecessary operations on patients — is due to be sentenced at nottingham crown court today, for intentionally wounding nine women and one man. lawyers say it's possible that hundreds of ian paterson's patients could have undergone surgery for no medical reason. some victims are calling for him to be given the maximum punishment — of life imprisonment. over a hundred more women have come forward since april to say he may have exaggerated or invented cancer risks in them. we can talk now to three of those women affected, bethan waite and lynn rollinson, who're outside the crown court in nottingham, waiting for that sentencing, due in around an hour's time.
9:38 am
sarahjane downing is in birmingham this morning, all three women underwent unnecessary surgery. and in the studio is solicitor, tom jones, from thompson's, the firm who represent the majority of paterson's victims. jane, paterson has been found guilty of 17 counts of wounding with intent. what would be an appropriate sentence for this man? victoria, it's so difficult. i don't know how we could ever really measure what he did to so many people. and it quite that to a sentence. i think it has to be the maximum but i'm not even sure if that's enough, to be honest. he performed an unnecessary lumpectomy or new, wider you think he did that? i don't know. he knew how terrified i was of the idea of surgery, how terrified i was of the idea of surgery, he knew how i absolutely didn't want to have an operation, and then he spent a lot of time convincing me and terrifying so
9:39 am
that, well, iagreed, against convincing me and terrifying so that, well, i agreed, against my betterjudgment. he said that if i left it much longer the lump was growing really rapidly. it would be a huge problem. and it would be so much worse to fix and reconstruct if it was about to get much bigger. so, haveit it was about to get much bigger. so, have it done quickly and have a smaller operation, all white and have something much worse. so i felt the only option was to go for the smaller one. of course. how difficult has it been to try and rationalise the fact you had been put through surgery for no reason?|j can't put through surgery for no reason?” can't rationalise it. it's too much to be able to process. i've been distracting myself by thinking about the campaign and starting the support group, and trying to do
9:40 am
something adjacent, rather than actually address it because i don't know how to address it. tom james, you represent many of his victims. what do you want to see, what do they want to see when it comes to sentencing today? i think in terms of sentencing it's part of the closure process for those who have had their lives devastated by this man. it's important he is punished ina way man. it's important he is punished in a way that is appropriately dramatic. it isn't a light sentence, that's absolutely right, because hundreds of women and men have been affected by his absolute callousness against them. it is quite unfathomable what he did. what's your view about why he did it? it's difficult to gauge. i wonder whether it was money, he was being paid for these operations privately. whether it was him being in charge, he was apparently charming but bullying. i think there's a whole host of factors, but whatever it was, he got
9:41 am
away with it for a very long period of time. your firm is launching a campaign called patients before profits, because you claim through this case there is a divide between how nhs patients are treated and private patients are treated. there isa very private patients are treated. there is a very clear divide. the nhs in these cases, they basically put their hands up, said there was a mistake and suspended him as soon as there were suspicions. they have paid compensation where it is appropriate and those cases are now closed. the private health provider, spire, simply hasn't done that. we are now in a situation where they say that they rented him a room and have no responsibility and they are not going to pay. we have a situation in which the —— they advertised as being available, they promoted him, the after—care was carried out on those premises and
9:42 am
yet they are saying they will not pay out for those people butchered by him. what levels of compensation had been paid out by the nhs?m varies depending on how the women we re varies depending on how the women were dealt with. it may be a futile and, it can be potentially tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands. there are women who have died as a result of his failures. the scandal is huge. the issue has to be that the private health care sector has to have the same responsibilities and deal with patients in the same way as the nhs. it is true to say that you've had another 100 patients come forward since his trial began in april. that's right. a lot of people wouldn't necessarily have realised, you are treated by a doctor, you wouldn't necessarily have thought it was him. then you see his face and you think, he did me. that's why we have people coming forward even today as a result of this. sarah jane, i've spoken to a
9:43 am
number of patients previously who said they would like to see a public enquiry into how this happened, how it was allowed to go on for so long and affect so many women and men. would you like to see that? absolutely. i think it really is necessary to know just exactly who did what and why they turned a blind eye for so long. i think people were probably colluding because they were making a lot of profit. but profit was going to spire health care. we wa nt to was going to spire health care. we want to know exactly what was done and how and why. we know some people's bills were padded with things they didn't have a have. there is a lot there to be looked at, i think. how there is a lot there to be looked at, ithink. how do there is a lot there to be looked at, i think. how do you feel today as you awake this sentence? very, very emotionally on edge, very stressed. it's so difficult to know what's going to happen. i'm deeply
9:44 am
worried that it won't be anywhere near enough. i deeply worried eve ryo ne near enough. i deeply worried everyone will be really upset. it's difficult today. i understand. thank you for talking to us. thank you very much, sarah jane you for talking to us. thank you very much, sarahjane downing and tom jones from thompsons. that sentencing is at nottingham crown court today and we will bring it to you and bbc news as soon as it happens. coming up. caroline lucas is next to go for a drive with me in my white van. hear her talk about drugs, tears and bath before 10:30am. i suppose the green party and the broader green movement, i think we haven't done nearly as well as we needed to do. that is that about 10:15am. every
9:45 am
wednesday we are looking at how the election is playing out on twitter. every wednesday up until the election, we're looking at how it's playing out on twitter, with data crunchers from think tank, demos, who've been analysing millions of tweets since the election was called. let's talk now to our two chaps from demos —josh smith — he's the techy one — and carl miller — he'll look beneath the data to tell us what it all means. good morning. we have been interested in opening up we have been interested in opening up the democratic abeid, letting people contact politicians who want to represent them. then we found there is 1400 candidates we have been following on twitter since the campaign started. from conservatives, labour, lib dems, ukip and the snp. we have been looking at the way they have been tweeting and engaging people, but this potential for people to contact candidates and say i am not sure about this policy, i thought you we re about this policy, i thought you were really good. to actually talk
9:46 am
to people it only works if it is a two—way street. what we are looking at is the candidates from those parties who have been the best at replying to people on the platform, who have got back to people's concerns, and we have a top five of the top candidate from each party who was replying the most. let's have a look. music so richard gadsden is the top reply, the number one on the list. that's right, richard gadsden, the most prolific reply of all, a liberal democrat candidate in manchester. it was that perhaps one of the reasons he replies so much is that he uses twitter to talk to his mates. he is outspoken isn't he? very. we looked at his tweets, if we have a second
9:47 am
general election this year, i getting i can stand, will have some sort of a breakdown. this was 11 hours ago, this is a tired candidate, is it not? i need a break. i have no clue about anything any more. exactly, this is twitter showing as the man behind the candidate, someone who has ran ragged on the campaign trail, is exhausted, nervous, fighting for history of being a politician. it is really showing us something you just wouldn't see in the airbrushed pr releases of the past. and it has definitely not gone through lib dem hq kamui thing. these are the best at replying on twitter. dr teck khong from ukip is interesting. he isa khong from ukip is interesting. he is a recent defector from the conservatives. you can see him laying into his former party. what is interesting about the way he
9:48 am
engages with people, the replies here sending on twitter, is very much toeing the party line. he sees it as much toeing the party line. he sees itasa much toeing the party line. he sees it as a platform to get the hashtags wa nts to it as a platform to get the hashtags wants to get out there, to use the official party hashtags, and a lot official party hashtags, and a lot of his replies are just people saying thank you for the follow, please vote for me. so much more formal. much less personal. carl, will quince is the top tory twitter. he does get into arguments on big issues. will quince, our top tory reply. but what really bill —— will quince has been engaging in the rough—and—tumble world of digital politics, a world that is in the sense of poorer and more immediate.
9:49 am
it only takes a second to send a tweet. candidates perhaps tired like richard gadsden can also sometimes lose theirtemperand get richard gadsden can also sometimes lose their temper and get stuck into theissues lose their temper and get stuck into the issues and debates with candidates and members of the public, many of whom disagree with them from all over the country. next, jess phillips from labour, tell us about her. we have talked a bit about disagreements, one of the interesting things about social media com you get trolled. especially if you are a public figure. people occasionally lay into you. jess phillips is interesting because she responds to those attacks, she tells people to get back under your rock, she is very verbose. we looked at the tweets she was sending that aren't retweets, and seven dibusz under the tweets she sent herself are actually replies to people. we will see some hopefully. what does this tell us
9:50 am
about her? that she is not afraid on social media to show us a side of what her personality is. looking through her twitter feed get what her personality is. looking through her twitterfeed get an idea of what she might be like as a person and that is another really interesting thing that people haven't necessarily been able to do. let's have a look. hi jess, are you able to do anything to project this? 0k, ok, you can see her personality coming through, clearly they have not been through labour hq. full vsm pe, john nicolson is the most engaged. he is interesting because
9:51 am
he is the link between social and mainstream media. he often replies to shows that cover politics. he is a candidate chipping in. this is a tweet from your show itself on monday. this is representing how social and mainstream media is mixing in strange and sometimes mysterious ways to both come together to produce the kind of public debate we are having in the country. so which candidates exist in a social media desert? we looked at people who are tweeting a lot but never replying, never using this ability to directly reach out to people and to respond to things. we had our top guns, these are the five worst candidates.
9:52 am
music soi so i think the big difference between the top and bottom five is the top five early understand something about five don't, that social media is a new kind of two —ish treat, a place to listen and a place to talk, as well as a place to broadcast. that is probably a good thing. we did research back in 2015 in the height of the last election in the height of the last election in the uk. we did a poll of social media users and we found that over 70% of them thought the democratic debate was being in some way improved by what was happening on social media, they could understand the candidates on the issues and then you better what the party stood for. about half of social media expected and wanted their candidates to be on social media. replying to
9:53 am
candidates and engaging with constituents. that is the big question between the bottom five. why does it matter if they are all not putting all our war on replying? as carl said, they are potentially missing an opportunity to engage with people straight into the own timelines to respond to issues being raised. it is about whether politics isa raised. it is about whether politics is a conversation or a pin board. is it about politician shouting out and trying to frame issues as they want or is this a channel that can be used to wield power better too, for politicians to be a bit too listen more easily and readily to people all over the uk and respond to the issues and concerns we have got? that is the heart of what we are trying to talk about today. you have talked about the abuse some politicians get. ajeremy corbyn
9:54 am
tweet last night didn't go down too well with plenty of conservatives. yes, the reaction to this tweet perhaps explains why people are reticent to put themselves out there on social media, especially if you are ina on social media, especially if you are in a position likejeremy corbyn. here we have a tweet. the response to this has been really interesting, in that people have replied saying, surely we don't need jeremy corbyn in order to further these people's, to unlock these people's talents? so the potential for putting that message out there and it being just laid upon and kind of attack is always there. it is quite a dangerous potentially environment for especially politicians. 0k, we are going to showjames politicians. 0k, we are going to show james cleverly‘s response and some other responses. james cleverly
9:55 am
isa some other responses. james cleverly is a conservative candidate and what he has done is effectively taken photographs of many other black asian and minority ethnic candidates and said for example here a conservative mp and a conservative assembly member waiting for our potential to be unlocked byjeremy corbyn. all of these are obviously sarcastic. shaun bailey, another candidate potentially. said kemal, leader of the conservatives reformist group. and so it goes on. gentlemen, thank you very much. you jeremy corbyn has been claiming the future of the nhs and england's schools are at stake in this election. let's talk to norman smith. mr corbyn actually looking pretty relaxed this morning as he was setting up what he claims are the risks patients and the elderly will face from another five years of
9:56 am
conservative government. they have produced this dossier here which they think details the fact that something like 1.5 million people will be waiting for care if the tories win, and there will be 1.8 million people more waiting for hospital treatments, and something like 650,000 schoolchildren in classes over 30 or so. labour by contrast, he says, would plough 37 billion into the nhs, 8 billion into social care, and really you sense it is trying to crank this election back on the mr corbyn's favoured territory, which of course is public services. labour will invest in our people, schools and hospitals. we will cut school class sizes, not schools. take a million people off the national health service waiting list, not add millions more. ensure that people get the care they deserve, and guarantee the dedicated
9:57 am
staff a pay rise. another five years of the conservatives would be disastrous for our public services. if they carry on, as they are now, then by 2022 there could be 5.5 million people on the nhs england waiting lists. 1.5 million older people with unmet care needs. 650,000 people crammed into primary school classes of over 30. families left almost £450 worse off per child asa left almost £450 worse off per child as a result of the tories's plan to scrap free school meals to 1.7 million of our children. one of the tricks in an election is to talk about what you want to talk about but not necessarily what the media wa nt but not necessarily what the media want you to talk about. i guess a lot of us this morning wanted to press mr corbyn about that leak of the discussion paper, which was put for the discussion paper, which was put foer the discussion paper, which was put for mr corbyn, setting out some
9:58 am
proposals on immigration, and one of them was this idea of allowing unskilled workers in from outside the eu. now that is currently blocked, the so—called tier three access is blocked, but this is cash and paper was apparently put before mr corbyn. team corbyn say it is not pa rt mr corbyn. team corbyn say it is not part of their policy but they wouldn't really engage with what we re wouldn't really engage with what were their policies this afternoon. in contrast, theresa may, of course, when she was pressed about this lea ked when she was pressed about this leaked document was more than happy to talk about it. just listen. from day one as prime minister, i'd been clear that i want to ensure we are supporting and looking after british people, and if we look at people who are living in the european union, i'm clear that are living in the european union, i'm clearthatl are living in the european union, i'm clear that i want to see an agreement where their rights are protected. of course it's reciprocal for eu citizens living here in the uk. that's why it's so important. we haven'tjust uk. that's why it's so important. we haven't just given those rights to eu citizens here in the uk, we are looking after uk citizens living in the european union. i want to see
9:59 am
reciprocal arrangements so we the european union. i want to see reciprocal arrangements so we can look reciprocal arrangements so we can look after them. as british prime ministerl look after them. as british prime minister i have a care for british people living in the eu. it is a funny thing, we are now immigration isa funny thing, we are now immigration is a massive issue but trying to get detailed answers from either of the main parties about what they will d raft main parties about what they will draft a freedom of movement has ended is proving a hopeless cause. but i want to be seen to spell out the details, even though it is such a huge election issue. now the latest weather. i know you are fascinated by my domestic heating arrangements, i am in limbo at the moment, what's going on? keep your heating off just at the moment, what's going on? keep your heating offjust now because temperatures are rising. these are the current temperatures we have. look at that already, in london it is 17. temperatures set to rise over the next few days and we will see a fair bit of sunshine. this weather
10:00 am
watchers picture is from king frankly. —— kings langley. the forecast for today is a bit of a mixture. mostly dry with one or two showers and some sunny spells. this morning we havejust showers and some sunny spells. this morning we have just that, showers and some sunny spells. this morning we havejust that, a real variety of weather. in the south we've got this cloud and also some sea we've got this cloud and also some sea fog in the english channel and the irish sea. we've got the cloud melting away across northern ireland and scotland. a fair bit of sunshine here as we go through the course of the day. if you are out of the breeze it will feel quite pleasant. we'll see some brighter breaks in the cloud and we will see showers from mid wales down towards south kent. some of that sea fog that is in the irish sea may lap onshore in the far south—west of scotland. it
10:01 am
will not make a lots of inland penetration. still some cloud around with the odd shower. sunny spells across south—west england. temperatures are beginning to climb into the high teens. as we drift through gloucestershire, if you showers in the midlands towards kent. it will be cloudy at times but will break and we will see some sunny spells or at worst, some sunshine. highs of 23—25. somewhere like glasgow could hit 19—20. through this evening and overnight will see cloud across scotland, northern england, northern ireland. it won't be such a chilly start to the day. fog in the english channel moving in sure. fog patches forming. then another weather front coming in from the west. that will drift slowly south east accompanied by gusty winds. the heaviest rain will
10:02 am
be on the hills. at lower levels it's more likely to be drizzly in nature but the cloud will build ahead of it. for england and wales we are at sunny skies and dry conditions. temperatures tomorrow could hit 26 in the south—east but we have fresher conditions coming into the northwest. ahead of it quite a muggy feel and with so much energy in the atmosphere we could see one or two thunderstorms developing. especially in the south—east and east anglia. behind that, back to bright spells, sunshine and showers. hello, it's 10:00am, i'm victoria derbyshire. ian paterson — the breast surgeon who carried out multiple unnecessary operations — will be sentenced later today. he knew how terrified i was of the idea of surgery. he knew how i absolutely didn't want to have an
10:03 am
operation. then he spent a lot of time convincing me and terrifying me, so that i agreed, against my betterjudgment. a new report finds that half of all online gamers are believed. —— bullied. well be talking to a victim of online gaming abuse in a moment. we'll hear from caroline lucasjust after 10:30. what do you think sets you apart from other middle—class, privately educated mps in their 50s? laughter that's a very good question! we will hear from caroline lucas at around 10:15am. good morning. now the latest news with joanna.
10:04 am
a huge car bomb in the afghan capital kabul has killed at least 80 people and injured over 350. the huge explosion happened in the diplomatic quarter of the city near the french embassy during morning rush hour. it's unclear who carried out the attack. in a statement, the taliban denied involvement. our 0ur correspondence our correspondence sent this report. it is a chaotic scene. it was a massive, massive blast. people tell me they haven't seen anything like this in many years. as you can see, all the windows and some doors are shattered. nobody has yet taken responsibility for the attack. but in spite of several demands from the international community, the insurgents and the taliban have not said "yes" to stop violence in the holy month of ramadan. police say a "dangerous" prisoner,
10:05 am
believed to be armed with a razor blade, is on the run after escaping officers in wiltshire. michael kisiel, who's 30, had been taken to hospital in salisbury with a head injury before overpowering prison guards yesterday evening. police are warning the public not to approach him. tens of thousands of expat pensioners may return to the uk to use the nhs after brexit — unless a deal can be done to let them keep receiving care abroad, a health charity has warned. the nuffield trust estimates the cost of treating them on home soil, rather than abroad — could double to £1 billion pounds. at the moment, the uk gives around 500 million a year to eu countries that care for brits who have retired overseas. that's a summary of the latest bbc news — more at 10:30. we will be talking about bullying
10:06 am
and a report that suggests more than half of online gamers are bullied. it's unbelievable. do get in touch with us throughout the morning — use the hashtag #victorialive and if you text, you will be charged at the standard network rate. sport now with holly hamilton. good morning. we are still waiting for this to be rubber—stamped by the board today. we heard yesterday that arsene wenger will be staying put as manager of arsenalfor arsene wenger will be staying put as manager of arsenal for another two yea rs. manager of arsenal for another two years. he's received a lot of criticism throughout the season, so what do fans make of the decision? let's speak to an arsenal supporter and vlogger. what was your initial reaction when you heard yesterday? not a surprise. i think it's been the worst kept secret that he was going to sign a new deal. not a surprise, just wondering to myself
10:07 am
why it's taken so long and has been so why it's taken so long and has been so drawn out, for them to announce it now. not a surprise. we had seen the banners, we've heard all the criticism. i think even arsene wenger himself had been quite surprised by how much criticism it's received —— he has received throughout the season. did he deserve it? inaudible the performances this season in the premier league and in the champions league were, to be quite frank, very poon league were, to be quite frank, very poor. in the premier league we lost nine games, we finished way off chelsea, and out of the top four, didn't make the champions league. in the champions league itself, we suffered two humiliating defeats to bayern munich 5—1. the team we were told we were moving to the emirates stadium to become the new bayern munich. we realised how far away and
10:08 am
how far off we were. i think, compounded on that, the fact there was no announcement, nothing was said, every time the club was asked about what was happening, so i think people who wanted him out so it has an opportunity to really do a lot of protests a nd an opportunity to really do a lot of protests and lots of banners, and trying to put as much pressure on as possible to try and get him to leave. i think the indecisiveness and performances have all led to the criticisms and have made it worse. those fans aren't going anywhere, there is still a level of anger, they aren't going to change their minds, are they? results change minds. even at the weekend, the victory over chelsea in the fa cup, i wouldn't say it's changed people's minds. but it makes people feel a bit better about the club. there we re
10:09 am
bit better about the club. there were fa ns bit better about the club. there were fans who were very pleased with the performance, not just were fans who were very pleased with the performance, notjust the fact we beat chelsea but the manner of how we did it. if the season gets underway and we are putting in good performances and playing good football, you know, the fans will warm to that. however, the problem is is that those fans won't go away. if on the other hand you have three bad performances and bad losses, the banners and things like that might come back out again. but, for me, is the big fearfor come back out again. but, for me, is the big fear for next season. thank you. the british and irish lions squad have arrived in new zealand for their tour which takes in three test matches. the first matches this saturday. how is this for a welcome? the lions were treated to a traditional maori welcome at auckland airport. the squad
10:10 am
responded by singing a welsh hymn. singing. a p pa re ntly apparently they were practising for weeks! that's all the sport for now, the latest in the next half an hour. thank you for your many, many comments about election on blind dates. broadly speaking most of you absolutely dates. broadly speaking most of you a bsolutely love dates. broadly speaking most of you absolutely love it. "that was so good, we have totally different political views and we have been friends for over 20 years". "big up for showing people can calmly and politely debate with the other side". "exceptional blind dates today, a stroke of genius". "this is
10:11 am
genius, opposing views being shown respectfully and light—heartedly". "i quite enjoyed this edition of election blind dates, that is how to do civil political discussion". " brave to do the programme and you fought the blue corner well". "this is winding me up, i don't need this so is winding me up, i don't need this so early in the morning! " "it shows we have more in common than divides us, please keep this going after the election!" ok, we'll try! almost three quarters of young people say they've been trolled while playing an online game and one in two say they've either been bullied, sent hate messages or threats by other online gamers. the figures have been described as "shocking" by anti bullying charity ditch the label, here's our reporter chi chi izhundu.
10:12 am
young people are being bullied online and it is in a place where they should be having fun and engaging in different conversations with people from all around the world. it is happening with online gaming. to explain exactly how and what it is, let's leave broadcasting house forjust a minute. here we are on the edge of our virtual city. it is places like this that exist on online video games. in gaming, other users can access this space, but it is also the place where bullying and abuse can happen. this abuse is coming from another gamer, and they can be absolutely anywhere in the world. because they are hiding behind the screen, they can say absolutely anything. more importantly, it is all live. luckily, here in my virtual world, i can get rid of them. but for a lot of people, that is just not possible. a new report shows the scale of bullying young people face when it comes to online gaming
10:13 am
and how widespread it is. the charity ditch the label spoke to 2,500 people aged between 12 and 26 and found they were regularly subjected to hate speech and threats. the report also found the problem is exacerbated because a lot of the virtual games are based on high levels of violence and conflict. they also found that seven out of ten young people say online—gaming bullying is an issue that needs to be taken more seriously, and they want more human moderators. the charity's aim is to bring the gaming community together to stop malicious trolling and bullying online. let's talk to daniel moran, who's 16 and received homophobic bullying whilst gaming. zane morris, a gamer who has received racial abuse. liam hackett, ceo of charity ditch the label who published this report. also aofie wilson, a gaming journalist for eurogamer. thank you for coming on the programme. tell us about the kind of abuse you've received. i'm 23 now
10:14 am
but this happened when i was 15, 16, that age range. i was playing online competitively. great environment to meet new people, have conversations. but in one particular case i started to receive racial slurs. i had my social media in my description. they didn't really bother me as such. then i started to receive torrents of e—mail saying that my account had been reported for spam and for abuse and eventually my account got close down and there was nothing i could down and there was nothing i could do about it. now, as someone who has been a game of all my life, this obviously annoyed me but i had other options, i could go out and play with my band, be with friends, there we re with my band, be with friends, there were so many with my band, be with friends, there were so many other opportunities. i worry for my nieces and nephews now, the roles have switched, they are now whether you're watching the cultural differences, gaming has

exploded. nowadays there is a lot more casual gamers, people who wouldn't normally get involved and now they are. i just really wouldn't normally get involved and now they are. ijust really hope that the internet can stay safe with them as well because they are the most impressionable, the people that ta ke most impressionable, the people that take the swear words and the racial slurs they hear on their headsets and go forth and said. as adults we are and go forth and said. as adults we a re less and go forth and said. as adults we are less at risk but it is a worry. leon, as zane says, it has exploded, so leon, as zane says, it has exploded, so in that sense it is a microcosm representative society. the more some people get involved, the more abuse there will be, do we have to accept it? no. we see bullying as a societal behaviour, it is a behaviour. we know that they usually are experiencing stressful and traumatic experiences. in this research we found that one in five had admitted to bullying somebody in the game, and we had a lot of kids
10:16 am
telling us that if they were being bullying orton pollute themselves or they were going something —— they we re they were going something —— they were being bullied themselves. we absolutely should not accept this. this is a cultural thing. gamers we re this is a cultural thing. gamers were telling us that this is normal behaviour, they would go into games at expect to be treated this way. look at uniting this way. the unfortunate thing of this research is that it is completely unsurprising to be. yes, a lot of people will look at this and say it is not bullying, it isjust the way it is. i think it is a cultural issue in gaming. unfortunately it is a very vocal minority, the majority of experience in my gaming has been overwhelmingly positive but there is more we can do to make sure young people especially aren't being desensitised to this kind of language. it has very real impacts, kids were telling us it was making them feel depressed, giving them anxiety, and we never people who are
10:17 am
being bullied off—line are more likely to play games to escape it, and then if they are being abused on that as well it amplifies the impact. can i ask you what you think of this research from liam's charity that people who are doing the bullying online are often not always being bullied themselves, do you buy that? i do. i haven't necessarily thought about it with such depth as iam now, but thought about it with such depth as i am now, but me personally, i grew up i am now, but me personally, i grew up with my mum working long hours. for myself, gaming as an escape, not escaping bullying but it was a way i could entertain myself and to myself engaged for those hours. i also know i had friends who went through similar things but they were not being bullied. we have grown out of it. but without doubt sometimes you don't have anywhere else to put it. these people don't have anywhere else to go out. there is definitely
10:18 am
a worry online. from my experience, a worry online. from my experience, a fairly visible person within the gaming industry and my pocket of the gaming industry and my pocket of the gaming industry, so i find that the challenging and engaging these people often you will find that they don't really think that far ahead. and if they see their words are having an impact, actually they will think more about it. what abuse have you experienced doing yourjob? explain yourjob. iamb eight games journalist but i am also quite visible on youtube and i write a lot of articles about gaming, hopefully celebrating games for the most part. but people think that gamers look a certain way, i'm very aware i don't fit that mould. as a woman, sometimes people think that you don't quite belong there. so you get some misogynistic abuse but i personally find it quite easy to let that slide. but i am very aware that
10:19 am
i want to make it clear to young women that they don't have to pick it up with that. my best tools for dealing with trawls is humour for one, but also disinterest will completely disarmed them as well.” don't respond? don't respond, or if they know they are getting the year thatis they know they are getting the year that is a win in their book. if i am ever playing over and watch and i say, "no one cares, broken". that will shut them up. here is a tweet, anyone who has played fifa online has been abused by some uppity american five—year road. with all due respect, it is not news. that someone due respect, it is not news. that someone who thinks it happening. this one says i am amused by the lack of comments from the gaming companies who irresponsibly design systems to allow online communication to take place during gaming with zero monitoring. we are getting better at that actually. i
10:20 am
mentioned over watch, an online game i play a lot, and blizzard have done a lot to tackle negative communities and environment springing up. that is one way to curb im better venue, the competitiveness that comes out, but also they added a tool not long back that turned a derogatory message into something completely different. which people can find ways around that but it means they are taking a stance on that language. it is such an interesting discussion because of course the games titles are a huge stakeholder in this and they have a jerky of ca re in this and they have a jerky of care to their users but what we are looking at is how users are —— a duty of care. but if you say children who play 18 rated games, it is their parents's responsibility on whether there child can handle certain types of content and
10:21 am
bullying. and that most online games are competitive in nature. when that is the environment, there will be trash talk. on that topic, there has technically been a huge shift in gaming culture towards competitive gaming. there was a lot more focus on cooperative gameplay, which i have a lot of memories playing with my brother. the whole split screen side of thing is gone, everyone against each other. now you have almost a football type mob behaviour where you have the key stars saying swear words. tribal behaviour, in a way. this e—mail from swear words. tribal behaviour, in a way. this e—mailfrom brian says victoria, i have a 13—year—old son, an online gamer, a facebook user, i have a feeling he is experiencing some kind of bullying and peer pressure but he puts on a front that everything is ok. i wish he would talk about it and not get angry or keep it in. i dislike this new technology generation, it is
10:22 am
changing society. i always say it is so changing society. i always say it is so important for parents and guardians to have fully open and honest relations with their children. but this online life is very real. it is important to talk about are just as you would off—line, talk about it around the dinnertable, ask off—line, talk about it around the dinner table, ask what they are doing online, what they enjoy about the internet but also we have the largest online support hub for anyone experiencing bullying. they can speak to one of our mentors anonymously and get advice and support. that is a resource for anyone impacted by these issues. there are games getting better at providing resources. life is strange, when it dealt with stories of suicide and bullying, at the end of suicide and bullying, at the end of the game it actually provided websites the kids to check out. sol think games are aware now of the reach they have, and also the difficulty is that a lot of their players have. though di stefano list re nt players have. though di stefano list rent in the message of telling kids
10:23 am
that if they are being bullied it is because the person they are bullying, their dad could be beating up bullying, their dad could be beating up their mum, then and could have passed away come you don't know what is going on in that young person's life. the result is a root cause.” am not sure there is always a root cause. no we have the data that says it is. ok. some of it is so casual though, that they don't even seem to know they are doing it. these nice middle—class kids with nothing to complain about being vile online. middle—class kids with nothing to complain about being vile onlinem is the anonymity that allows people to say anything they like. you get some taunts meant injest. i am not saying people who are doing that i going through something difficult by people who are obsessively perpetrating these behaviours, to the extent where it is unhealthy, there is a lazy root cause. thank you very much for a really interesting discussion, let's hope it -- interesting discussion, let's hope it —— there was always a root cause. wiltshire police say they are
10:24 am
looking for a dangerous prisoner believed to be armed with a razor blades. let's talk to our correspondent, andy moore. the latest information is that the police perhaps think this was preplanned? we have just police perhaps think this was preplanned? we havejust had police perhaps think this was preplanned? we have just had an updated press release from the police, and they are saying this may have been preplanned, and he may have been preplanned, and he may have had assistance. so the more we hear about this, the more serious the case becomes. we heard last night he had escaped from hospital about 7pm last night. at the time, we we re about 7pm last night. at the time, we were told that he had given his guards the slip. now we have heard in fact that he overpowered his guards. two guards was it? i am not sure, but he overpowered his guards and made his escape. he was taken to hospitalfor a head and made his escape. he was taken to hospital for a head wound sustained somehow or other in his cell. so
10:25 am
there is now the possibility that there is now the possibility that the head wound was deliberately inflicted in some way so he could get the hospital, and then perhaps with some sort of assistance escape. we are now hearing more about his background. the police and the ministry ofjustice won't comment at all on his background. but in fact he was jailed for five years last yearin he was jailed for five years last year in luton for a terrible attack ona year in luton for a terrible attack on a mother and her daughter. he actually tied up both victims for eight hours, and he threatened to kill the mother, holding a large knife to her throat. and we now know that he has a blade of some sort with him as he is on the loose, and police say he is dangerous, and there is a very large operation underway to find him. we have been showing images of him but give us the description and what the advice to members of the public is if they think they spot. he is white, five tall with blonde hair, originally from poland. of medium build with very distinctive tattoos on his neck. he was wearing grey tracksuit items and the black t—shirt with
10:26 am
blue trainers. he didn't have any idea on him or any money, but if he has assistance of course, that may not be such a big problem. the advice from the police is not to approach, just call immediately. thank you very much. next to kabul, let's get the latest on that car bomb that has exploded in the diplomatic quarter, killing at least 80 people and wounding 300 others. our 80 people and wounding 300 others. 0ur correspondence 80 people and wounding 300 others. our correspondence from the bbc afg ha n our correspondence from the bbc afghan service, tell us what you know at this stage. the latest is that we now no that about 80 people have been killed and 350 are injured. four of have been killed and 350 are injured. fourof our have been killed and 350 are injured. four of our staff have also had minor injuries, and u nfortu nately we lost had minor injuries, and unfortunately we lost one of our support staff, who was a driver. oh
10:27 am
my goodness, i didn't realise that, as well. what do we know about who might be behind this car bomb? the afg ha n might be behind this car bomb? the afghan president, he has been asking that in the month of ramadan there should not be explosions, let's stop violence but nobody responded to that, insurgent group. this particular attack will be difficult for the insurgents to take responsibility because of the level of civilian casualties. this is normally the case when civilian casualties are high. insurgent groups don't take responsibility for it. if it is the security forces casualties are high, then the response is instant. apart from spreading terror, what is it that
10:28 am
the insurgents want, ultimately?- the insurgents want, ultimately?- the end of 2017, they announce that this year at least, the taliban at least, announced they will be targeting foreign troops and pressurising the afghan government. soi pressurising the afghan government. so i guess it is that operation, that think they are carrying on. they want foreign soldiers out of the country? that's right, and we see evidence from that at the start of this year, we have had one incident like this almost every month. thank you very much, thank you. it is half past ten, let's bring you the latest news. a huge car bomb in kabul has happened in the diplomatic quarter of the city near the french embassy in morning rush—hour. it's unclear who carried out the attack. in a statement, the taliban in tick—macro denied involvement. police say a
10:29 am
prisoner on the run may have had assistance in a preplanned escape. michal kiesel had been taken to hospital before overpowering prison guards yesterday evening. police are warning the public not to approach. tens of thousands of pensioners in the eu may return to the uk to use the eu may return to the uk to use the nhs after brexit, unless a deal can be done to let keep receiving ca re can be done to let keep receiving care abroad. the nuffield trust estimates the cost of treating them on home soil could double to £1 billion. at the moment the uk gives around £500 million a year to eu countries that care for british pensioners. a 30—year—old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the bodies of a woman and two children were discovered in a flat in liverpool. the discovery was made by officers investigating reports of a fuel leak by officers investigating reports of afuel leak in by officers investigating reports of a fuel leak in toxteth. police say they aren't looking for anyone else. that's a summary of the latest news, join me for bbc newsroom
10:30 am
live at 11 o'clock. here's some sport now. good morning. we now know he's staying put, a decision that has divided opinion among arsenal fans. we are expecting an official announcement from the club in the next half an hour confirming that arsene wenger will remain at arsenal for another two years. how's this for another two years. how's this for another two years. how's this for a welcome? the british and irish lions have arrived in auckland, receiving a traditional maori welcome. they will play three tests against the all blacks, their first four matches on saturday. he needs our help, jack nicklaus has spoken out about his friend tiger woods after the former world number one was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence on monday. it's been a good start for andy murray at the french open, he faces world number 50 martin klizan in the second round at roland garros tomorrow. i'll have all that and
10:31 am
more in the next half an hour. this morning the joint leader of the green party tells this programme she'll cry if the greens only return one mp after next weeks general election. in a wide ranging interview caroline lucas also tells us why she believes some drugs should be legalised and prostitution decrininalised. shejoined me in an electric white van for part of our van share series — with different politicians from some of the main parties. in this interview — which was recorded before the manchester terror attacks — she also says talks should happen with so—called islamic state, but she's not naive enough to think is will send a representative to any talks. music let's start by talking about your manifesto.
10:32 am
you want to scrap university tuition fees. yes. and you want to write off all existing student debt. we think it is wrong that young people get saddled with this huge amount of debt as they are starting in their working lives, and also that we think education should be a public good, not a personal commodity. how much would it cost? our guarantee about tuition fees would cost between 8 billion, according to the ifs, or 11 billion, according to other aspirational estimates that have been done. a year? yes. we would not be spending money, for example, on trident nuclear weapons, hs2, the hinckley nuclear—power station. we would say that people with the broadest shoulders need to pay more tax. why do you want to use the taxes from low—income families to pay the tuition fees of wealthy students, and ultimately to pay off the debt of wealthy students? we would not be addressing
10:33 am
our tax rises to people on the lowest income. we have policies like the universal basic income that would help people on the lowest incomes and on no income. we say that we want a country where we can afford good public services for everybody, and those are the political choices we can make. we the fifth—biggest economy in the world, and so it is up to us how we make those choices. you are happy to pay the tuition fees of wealthier students and pay off their debt? if they are wealthy, they will pay more into the tax system ultimately. so the answer is yes? yes, because they will pay more ultimately through progressive taxation. you want to give a citizens‘ income to everybody. i am not sure you are calling it that. basic income. £80 a week. we want to do a pilot. we need to have a debate about the future of work.
10:34 am
that would be a payment you would want to pay to everybody, including premier league footballers, property millionaires, bankers? for people earning more, like your football players, they would pay a lot more tax. but there will be some people who think that is just bonkers, because that will cost, if it is 80 quid a week, around £300 billion a year. you would also not be paying lots of the benefits. it would not be on top of existing benefits. you scrap existing benefits, 160 billion, it is still 140 billion, giving to people who do not need it. it will be a pilot, and combined with more—progressive taxation. as a result, those people who do not need it will pay more anyway, as a result of our tax policies. it guarantees basic security to people.
10:35 am
people might think this is not the right answer, and that is fine, but at least the question is being asked by us, how is it that in the fifth—richest country in the world we have a situation where 4 million kids are living in poverty, where people are dependent on food banks, nurses, because they cannot have enough money to put food on the table? in that context, it is right to ask the questions. one challenge is protecting the planet. you have failed to get people talking about the environment. nobody is talking about the green agenda in this election. we launched... do you take some responsibility? i suppose the green movement has not done as well as we have needed to do. i don't think the fault is entirely ours. we launched an environment manifesto ten days ago, and although we had some journalists there and tv cameras, none of it cut through, you would not have seen it
10:36 am
on your tv screens, so it is an enormous challenge. it feels as if the whole political debate now is being so stifled by the inability to think big ideas. we are not going to be the next government, i hope we will have some more green mps who will put pressure on the next government, but what we can do is broaden the terms of the debate, having the debate about how we cope with a future where fewer people are going to be having the kind of nine—to—five secure jobs that they might have expected in the past. do you accept that voters do like to know how things are going to be costed and need a credible answer? voters will be pleased to know that somebody is thinking about the future, about what the world of work will look like in the 21st century. why do you think the loudest anti—brexit parties are plummeting in the polls, you and the lib dems?
10:37 am
i don't think it is as a result of saying that we believe the people should have the final say on the referendum. i do not think we are saying, "don't get on with it," but when you come back with a final deal, does that go to parliament or does it go back to the people? it was the people that started off the debate, and given the magnitude of the decision that we are taking, given the fact that so much of what we were promised has proved not to be the case, £350 million to the nhs, turkeyjoining, the fact we are supposed to the keeping the same economic arrangements now as we had when we were part of the eu, all of that has unravelled spectacularly. if people voted no to that final deal, britain would stay in the eu? exactly. would you set a limit for the number of immigrants allowed into britain? we are standing up for free
10:38 am
movement, we would not to seek a limit on that. the economy sets how many people come here, and we think it is the most—precious gift that people can work and retire and study and live and love and learn in 27 other member states. it is amazing, and i feel so sad that my kids now will not have the benefits that i did from that. slight change of subject. should people who support so—called islamic state or become a member of al-qaeda, should they be prosecuted? absolutely. previously you have said they should not. we have never said that. natalie once misspoke on a bbc politics programme, but the green party is clear, any kind of involvement in any kind of violence like that is utterly a criminal offence and should be prosecuted, of course. would you support talks with is?
10:39 am
talking is normally what gets solutions, as it was in ireland. it is hard to think who your interlocutor is. so, yes to talks, but not to be naive that is will nominate somebody to have a chat. you are happy for green candidates to stand aside in some seats if it is going to split the vote and therefore potentially allow a conservative candidate to win. is that not skewing democracy somewhat? labour, lib dems, greens and no party are coming together to say, come on, let's try to just be a bit more savvy about this voting system, which we know is on course to be handing, if the polls are right, a landslide majority to the tories. how can we ensure that different voices are heard, how can we put aside narrow tribal interests just for once? it is a difficult thing to ask parties to do,
10:40 am
but there was a huge appetite for it at a local level, including at the labour party and the lib dems. it was not reciprocated at a national level, but i still feel it was the right thing to do. on your website you say you are not a typical mp. what do you think sets you apart from other middle—class, privately—educated mps in their 50s? it is a cruel question! i think it is a combination of being prepared to think the unthinkable as part of the green party, i think it is willing to put your body where your mouth is, the preparedness to take non—violent direct action when other measures have ended. that sense of being prepared to stand up for what you believe in without compromising is relatively rare. which drugs would you legalise?
10:41 am
we want an evidence—based drugs policy, and what we have under this government and the successive ones has been an evidence—free policy. there is such an ideological reaction. even if it were the case to be proven that a different policy could keep far more people safe from drugs, it's not even being looked at. what we are saying is, let's start with cannabis, let's start by making that available, if you are over 18 and under certain circumstances. how old are your children...? the parents i have spoken to in brighton support this issue. it is one i have stood up for in brighton very strongly. they will be pleased that once they are 18 their children can turn around to their parents and say, "look, it is regulated now, i can smoke cannabis"? many people under 18 are already getting hold of those drugs, becoming addicted, and because we have a criminal—justice system that treats
10:42 am
addiction as a criminal offence rather than as a health problem, there is no way of them getting support. would you legalise prostitution? we believe, again, a decriminalisation, both of the buyer of sex and of the seller, is a way of keeping more people safe. i have some quickfire questions. would you describe yourself as a feminist? definitely. are you pleased we have a second female prime minister? i suppose. you hesitated! only because i hate her policies, but of course we need whoever is doing the policies, i would rather more women were in the public sphere. have you taken illegal drugs? yes.
10:43 am
a bit of cannabis a long time ago. your most—expensive purchase, not including a car or a home? a piano. how much? i think it was about £1,000. do you play? very badly. my son plays a lot better. when was the last time you cried? i think i cried last week, just out of exhaustion and frustration. i cry very easily. you can set me off at a moment! if you only return one mp again this time, yourself... i might cry again. i want molly to be elected in bristol west, i want vix lowthion to be elected in the isle of wight. it would be brilliant, and it would notjust be tears because i am sad, i would be heartbroken that we have not managed to get people like them into parliament, because i think they are needed. how much is the pip disability
10:44 am
benefit? hole i can't remember now. is it £80 from something like that? it is about £65. to be honest, that isa it is about £65. to be honest, that is a nice way of catching me out, but the most important thing is to make sure that people with disabilities are looked after. the most embarrassing thing you have done when you were drunk? most embarrassing thing you have done when you were drunk7m most embarrassing thing you have done when you were drunk? it is not necessarily when i am drunk, but i figured people's names and faces. do you sing in the shower, and if so, what? i assume it is a shower rather than a bath? we like our occasional baths as well! my favourite singer is regina spektor, i would try to sing some of her songs, she is wonderful. i don't know her, can you sing to me a little bit? i am not going to do that. we need the guitar, but yes... thank you. lovely to see you, take care.
10:45 am
iso i so wish i had my son's keita with me, and then she may have had to sing, although i cannot play it. and more van share with other politicians to come over the next week. the metropolitan police is going to recruit people directly as detectives without them spending time in uniform. we can speak now to her majesty's inspector of constabulary, zoe billingham, and leroy logan who is a former metropolitan police superintendent and retired after 30 years' service how bad is the shortage of detectives? very bad. we put in our most detectives? very bad. we put in our m ost rece nt detectives? very bad. we put in our most recent report there is a national crisis in the shortage of detectives and we have called on forces to take all sorts of innovative action, like the met are doing, to make sure that skilled
10:46 am
people are investigating very serious crimes. ok, but you are now going to have people with skills in other areas but not policing. someone who has never arrested someone, someone who someone who has never arrested someone, someone who has never sought a crime, going straight in as a detective? what you wouldn't believe that the moment is that we have people who have no detective experience at all who are police officers investigating rapes and evenin officers investigating rapes and even in one incident a homicide. what we want to be happening is a proper training course for people necessarily coming in from outside of policing if that is what the met thinks is important, they get the appropriate training, they learn how to investigate a crime, they used theirforensic to investigate a crime, they used their forensic intelligence well and they bring offenders to justice. that is preferable to forces using a patchwork approach and not having the right skilled people investigating very, very serious crimes against people. ok, leroy logan, what do you think about this?
10:47 am
there are certain things you can't learn from a book or online. there are certain skills that you develop through on—site learning. are certain skills that you develop through on-site learning. sorry to interrupt, zoe billingham says there are people investigating crimes as serious as murder and rape because of the shortage. it is because there isa of the shortage. it is because there is a shortage, and i think it is really near—sighted that they haven't understood when you have a high caseload of officers, and the fa ct high caseload of officers, and the fact that they are leaving in their droves, and it is so difficult to get into the tech —— the detective syste m get into the tech —— the detective system that it has left a crisis. it feeds into the narrative that it is just one crisis after another. people are sensing they are not getting the service they deserve. 0k, getting the service they deserve. ok, why couldn't a graduate with a degree in, i don't know, english literature take a course to learn some of the skills to become a detective, and then go on to become
10:48 am
a successful detective? i'm not saying that they can't do it, the only thing is the time between them being a graduate — i was a graduate when ijoined being a graduate — i was a graduate when i joined the being a graduate — i was a graduate when ijoined the net but there were certain skills are developed, interacting with the public, knowing when someone is lying to you, getting an understanding of how you map out the process of investigation. that doesn't come just online or through a website. so i believe there is going to be a bit ofa i believe there is going to be a bit of a risk when it comes to this transition to them being effective detectives. briefly, zoe billingham, what about those skills you pick up that leroy logan has just talked about? these folks are not going to be thrown in at the deep end, they will be recruited, they will have the right skills, they will go through intensive training, they will work alongside other very senior detectives for a period of time working on perhaps less complex crimes to start with and then working at the more conflicts crime areas. if they have the right skills and qualities in order to be to do so. and qualities in order to be to do so. the public must be kept safe, at
10:49 am
the end of the day, and this training needs to be intensive and conference. they have to be properly supervised, that is key. if they are not, and not the current situation where you have a higher ratio of constables, detective constables and detective sergeants. they won't have the intrusive supervision to ensure it is notjust a rubber stamp, go on, move on, they actually have the skills that they speak about. will they be properly supervised? absolutely, supervised all the way through their training and for many yea rs into through their training and for many years into their qualifications as well. does that reassure you, briefly? the jury's out. thank you both of you. tens of thousands of expat pensioners may return to the uk to use the nhs after brexit, unless a deal can be done to let them keep receiving care abroad, a think tank has warned. the nuffield trust estimates
10:50 am
the cost of treating them on home soil, rather than abroad, could double to £1 billion. currently, the uk gives around £500 million a year to eu countries that care for brits who have retired abroad. jean moore originally from the west midlands is one of the 190,000 pensioners living in the eu. i spoke to her in spain a short time ago about the care she's receiving there. i get excellent care here, and i am frightened. i didn't vote for brexit, because i couldn't vote. and i'm frightened if i come back now, or when brexit occurs, i won't get the same treatment. my arthritis has flared up really badly lately, and the hospital were worried, so they are going to start me on a new treatment, but they have to get permission for this new treatment. i feel if i come back to the uk, i will not get this treatment. what impact would that have on you?
10:51 am
it would be devastating. i'm 74 onjune 10th, and if i have a seizure, i can't walk. it affects all myjoints. my sons in england are worried about me. fortunately, for me, i have a wonderful carer in my husband, who is 83 in august, and he helps me an awful lot. right. so the reason we're talking to you today, obviously, is because this report from a think tank suggesting that people like yourself might have to come back to the uk to use the nhs after brexit, unless a deal can be done that allows you to continue receiving your care abroad, in spain where you are right now. how hopeful are you that that sort of deal can be done? well, i always look on the bright side and think, well, britain will come through for us, because there's a lot of people in spain who work in the uk,
10:52 am
a lot of spanish people. they will want their treatment the same, so if the uk and spain reciprocate one another, we'll get on well. but if they go for a hard brexit, and they refuse this nhs thing, i'm done for, i might as well go and get the funeral plan out and die with my coffin. oh, jean, you don't mean that, do you? i tell you what it is, i can't tell you how painful this rheumatoid arthritis is. it's like a silent disease, you look really healthy, but it's a crippling disease on thejoints, and i'm just frightened that if i go back to the uk, i won't get the same treatment. well, that was jean,

well, that wasjean, god bless her, her husband is her carer. he is 83. with me is mark dayan, who carried out the research, he's from the health charity the nuffield trust. hello to you, mark. so how real is this possibility that somebody like gene might have to come back to the ukfor gene might have to come back to the uk for treatment? i hope a deal can be done, but we are some how going into the unknown with this. there are some countries outside the eu that have set up a reciprocal arrangement with the uk, australia is one. when you consider how many countries there are across the eu to come to some sort of arrangement with. yes, exactly, how many countries, and also a reciprocal arrangements are foreigners who are living here. although relatively few eu migrants refuse to retire to britain for reasons of cost and perhaps the weather, but certainly we would want that to be seen as a

priority in brexit negotiations. i think that is one of a range of issues where the nhs will be affected by brexit, and what we want to see is it remaining at the centre of the government's minds as they come to these difficult negotiations. if a deal is reached, how much of an impact will it have on the nhs? there are a number of things that might be tricky for the nhs. firstly, you would have these pensioners potentially having to return to britain to get the care they need. that will cost a bit of extra money. perhaps more importantly, added pressure on beds and nurses which are very stretch at the moment, it has been very inconvenient for pensioners like gene who probably like living where they are, and getting the care they do. then there is the impact on staffing. at the moment the nhs is quite reliant on migrants from the eu to fill but unfortunately due to bad planning has become a big gap particularly around nursing. lastly there is the market for medicine. at there is the market for medicine. at the moment the nhs really benefits

from being able to buy medicine from across the eu, because it is all under the same pricing scheme. right, and in terms of the nursing shortage, what is the situation right now? we already have a shortage of tens of thousands of nurses. an analysis by the department of health which was lea ked department of health which was leaked show they think that could widen to as much as 20 to 50,000 more unfilled posts by 2025, if all nursing migration was cut off after brexit, which i don't think we want to see. and that is unlikely to see, because pretty much all the parties have said whether they want to bring net migration down or not, most of them have said it depends on the needs of the economy. so if we need nurses, you would like to think we would encourage nurses from abroad if we haven't got them here. that's what we are saying, and we are encouraged by the both main parties showing signs they have heard that concern. what i would say is in the past when there was a crackdown from

migration from outside the eu, that really did push down the numbers, and the salaries weren't quite high enough to meet some of the standards. i am in carriage gate will be addressed but it is quite a real concern. thank you very much. ——iam real concern. thank you very much. —— i am encouraged that it will be addressed. thank you for your many comments on election blind dates. mark on facebook says i love these election dates, listening to normal people having sensible, constructive political discourse. what i love most is that the participants are actively listening to each other and having a normal conversation. our political class should take note. john on facebook, as an interesting follow—up, the right wing young lady should go on a life swap with a carer or somebody similar. dawn on facebook says this is the way me and my friends are. we don't agree on
